It's been my experience that only the truth can upset people so. Something to think about.

Your 'experience' could be nothing more than a collection of random electrical signals in your brain and unfortunately holds no Scientific value and is rendered irrelevant, so that doesn't matter.

Something to think about.

Your comment above demonstrates a profound ignorance of the topic. I started to type up a long, carefully-worded post to help you out of that pit of ignorance, but I changed my mind.

You can take the time to educate yourself by reading a book (I've provided several links to good ones) or you can live in ignorance thinking you know the first thing about the subject. The choice is yours.  :rolleyes:




Mutations are very rare, and are mostly harmful when speaking in the sense of evolution. I am not here to talk about the detail of mutations, I am here to talk about the flaws of evolution. I can speak broadly without you jumping down my throat about semantics.

Mutations at the molecular level make sense when applied to the formation of diseases, the resistance of bacteria, and the passing of genes.... however, when it comes to organisms speciating there is only 1 way this can occur, by mutation. For this to occur, refer to my previous post. Why isn't macroevolution seen in the lab? E.Coli reproduces at an astronomical rate, and hence can produce thousands of mutations in days. Not once do any of these mutations produce a new species of E.coli, just different strains. If it hasn't occured with billions of e.coli in the lab producing millions of mutations, then how could it possibly happen with larger scale organisms which produce 1 or 2 young?

If everyone else is Armchair Scientist/Philosopher, what exactly does that make Diploid? For a guy with such immense and unquestionable knowledge, you'd think he'd be doing something a bit more productive and beneficial for his field of expertise than showing up a bunch of 'ignorant' druggies on an internet messageboard.

More ignorance. Speciation (macroevolution) has been observed in the lab; more than once.

For starters, read:

Weinberg, et al. 1992

and

Callaghan 1987

Come back and debate when you're better informed. :poke:

What do you mean? Mutations happen every time anyone is reproduced. There are mutations happening in your body right now.

Tumours are mutations.

Not once do any of these mutations produce a new species of E.coli, just different strains.

What's the difference between a species, and a strain?

Sorry if I kick a dead horse with this comment, I just dont want to read the whole 20 pages. I think that science is a prison to its own belief. Those who believe in science are jsut reinforceing that the world is 1 way. Just because something seems to be 1 way doesnt mean it is. Thier is no proof gravity works beyond are own empirical knoweledge. And we all know (a) empirical knoweledge can be false and (b) things change(heck mabey gravity is slowly starting to reverse, who am I to tell).

Science is just 1 more story trying to explain what is before our eyes. It does nothing more then provide people with 'neat tricks' and some form of knoweledge (whether actually thier or not).

Science is the accumlation of data. All we know about gravity is what we have observed. Science makes no assumptions beyond that, and is always welcome to new ideas that have a solid foundation.

Why is science able to come up with neat tricks that can clearly be demonstrated, which things like astral projection, and esp are all wishy washy things that only work under certain circumstances, and are constantly being thrown off by "negative vibes"?

What do you mean? Mutations happen every time anyone is reproduced. There are mutations happening in your body right now.

They happen every time anyone is reproduced? I hope you don't mean that is the basis for genetic variability. But yes, mutations occur whenever DNA is replicated, but there are enzymes that constantly repair them and are quite effective.

What's the difference between a species, and a strain?

A species is defined as an organism that can exchange genes with eachother but can't with other groups. A strain is a pure-breeding lineage of organisms, but mainly bacteria.

I couldn't find that. Could you please provide a better link? I find this to be an amazing discovery and I'm surprised I haven't heard of it.
